First off - I love wildflowers. One of the first books I ever bought myself was a book on California Wildflowers. I used my allowance to pay the bookstore off and bought that book and a book about animals. I was 10 maybe. I was so proud of buying my own books. I still have them. So as I've moved and grown, this love of wild plants has pretty much stayed with me. I have to know what they are and if they could be useful. Included in my job list is working with a friend who would wild food forage and I would usually go along. So I know bull cane is edible at certain times a year and where to pick mustang grapes, how to make agarita jelly and buffalo plums (which are actually legumes).
So when i was helping Blinda - my landlady with her community garden I found a plant that I just can't identify. It's slowly driving me nuts. It's either wild or an excaped variety of sunflower. I can't seem to get a good picture of it and I cannot identify it. I know there has to be a picture somewhere but who knows.
If anyone reads this and knows what it is please let me know.
It is a Cowpen Daisy. I was happy I figured it out finally.
